Kit Kemp A LIVING SPACE

Share

“In this book, I hope you will find a myriad of ideas and the
encouragement to listen to your heart and trust your own instinct: I
have one design rule and that is, there are no rules. If I can give you
any advice, it is don’t be afraid to give it a go. If someone comes in
halfway through the design process and has an opinion contrary to
yours, then send them away until you are done. And always remember
to keep it personal – I would never have anything in our hotels that
I wouldn’t have in my own home. Design is a private, intimate process
and you have to embrace the many twists and turns it takes to
creating an exciting, inspiring but ultimately liveable space.”

In A Living Space, internationally acclaimed interior designer Kit Kemp shares the tools of her trade
– her passion for materials such as fabric and embroidery, wood and stone; the innovative way
she dares to mix colour and pattern with old and new furniture, textiles and objects; the joy in the
wit and humour of contemporary art, dogs and unexpected details; and most importantly, her
ethos that design is not something to fear, but instead something to be embraced and enjoyed.
Kit showcases her signature style – an intoxicating blend of contemporary elements with antiques
and junk-shop finds, luxurious fabrics with printed wallpapers and hand-finished detailing with
collections of simple objects that create impact. With the emphasis on having fun, Kit reveals how
to play with scale, colour and pattern to create personal, handcrafted spaces.
Alongside the beautiful photographs, Kit also offers snippets of styling and design advice and
reaffirms the importance of creating a space that is both beautiful and comfortable and reflects
your personality.
